    I've been trying to find something that seems to be more rare than a woolly mammoth.

    A 1U chassis with 2.5" drive bays (8+) that is relatively cheap, fits an ATX motherboard with a 120w CPU and has a 80+ gold or better power supply. Anyone have suggestions/ ebay ideas for this kindof thing? 2.5" as a term on ebay gives some weird results.

    Another option for you to consider is looking for a 1u chassis that has two 5.25" bays and you could then add in either 4 in 1 or 6 in 1 hot swap racks to those bays

    HP had the storage 1u appliances that pop up on Ebay quite often. I guess they fit ATX with some work.

    My ebay-fu is not strong today. I couldn't find a gold or silver and that drive combo.

    I don't think many of the HP 1Us support 8x 2.5" drives...

    Define "cheap". I scored one of these, new open box, for $175 on ebay last month: Supermicro | Products | Chassis | 1U | SC113MTQ-330CB

    Deals are out there. You've got to be diligent (and patient) to find them.

    The HP G6 barebones are doing 200 or so and most have 8x2.5". The Supermicro is probably more friendly with generic hardware though.
